comment Live USB not installing
I think a big difference is GRUB. It's not needed for the live OS, but needs to be properly configured and installed when booting normally. I think this is mainly a problem with multiple partitions, though (which I always have).

comment My system won’t start. Error no such device: …
That uuid is probably the id of the partition you deleted; it was probably the one with the menu portion of GRUB. The bootloader looks for this menu and can't find it. It should be an easy fix, but I'm not able to help right now - sorry.

comment Mouse movement wakes computer from suspend, can't disable it
Can't you turn off the mouse when not using it? Or, if it has a USB receiver, remove that before moving. Not very high tech, but it is what it is.

Upvote for the better restart command - I had the obsolete one in my notes, and didn't remember the one you used, which is better (although both will work). Also, kudos for mentioning the need to restart. I had added it later, but kept forgetting along the way.

comment Is it possible to set up multiple local domains on localhost in Ubuntu 14.04?
@AndresArana: About 5 - 6 years or so ago (at the age of 62), I didn't even know how to begin setting up a server, or creating a web site. It began mostly as a hobby. Now I've done a few professionally, done troubleshooting professionally, and use Vim (actually mostly gvim) for editing the sites (I love using gvim and Linux now).

I added a little more to my answer, showing an example of doing this from the outside world using noip ddns. Same technique, but instead of modifying the hosts file, you set up ddns sites, and put those into the Apache config file.

@AndresArana: No. See notes at the end of my original answer. It's really not too complicated, but I think you haven't quite seen the big picture yet, which may be my fault for not communicating it better.

@AndresArana: There does need to be that link; that's what enables it to happen. Did you enter the command in the mods-enabled directory? Sounds like you may have entered it in the mods-available directory, which is why it said it already existed. Creating the link enables an available mod.

comment Dell Inspiron 3451 failing to boot
So it would not even boot from the USB? If that's true, a factory reset won't help. Maybe a BIOS update, if there is one (that should always be done). What kind of diagnostics did Dell do? Either something is missing from these facts or there is a problem outside of the OS.

It's actually easy, but it's late here, so I'll give a brief guide, and fill in more or answer questions tomorrow. So, I'll start on a quick answer below

comment Dell Inspiron 3451 failing to boot
Did you ever run the memory test available on startup? It could be a hardware problem. Or, try booting from a live CD/USB/etc. See if it runs that way. If so, you could create a partition and copy your home directory to it, then install Ubuntu over the old version. If that works, you can access you home directory and copy the files back.

I'm not sure what you mean by .local; are you just trying to have more than one local domain, or is .local something special? It's easy to have multiple local domains, like xxx.local, yyy.local, zzz.dev, etc. At least it is if you're using Apache.
